Iceland Prepares For “Volcano From Hell”

Iceland continues to prepare for a possible volcanic eruption. Bardarbunga volcano, buried under one of Europe’s largest glaciers, is rumbling to life. Tuesday morning, it was hit by a 5.7-magnitude quake. “This could be the volcano from hell,” said CBS News contributor and City University of New York physics professor Michio Kaku. “To quote Yogi Berra, ‘It’s deja vu all over again.’ Remember the paralysis from four years ago? Millions of passengers being stranded with the threat of airplanes falling from the sky?” In 2010, a volcanic eruption in Iceland created an ash cloud nine miles high. The plume spread across Europe, grounding 100,000 flights, affecting 8 million travelers and costing airlines $1.7 billion. Kaku says this eruption could happen within the next few days, especially considering the latest earthquake.
